1963 Mercury Meteor by Chad Truss Photography

Just last week I shot my friends 1963 Mercury Meteor.

This car has a cool story. My friend bought the car back in high school (mid 90′s) and cruised town with it back then. Since then it has been in storage and just a few months ago he decided to pull it out and get it on the road again.

This car is all original except for the wheels. Original black paint, original 260 V8 under the hood, and the original musty smelling interior. :)

This thing is a clean classic cruiser. I dig it.

Here is a link to the photo set on Flickr

And here is a cool wallpaper suitable for widescreen monitors.

This is a shot I like of my friends Mini Cooper S. The grey color and blacked out trim really worked. This shot was taken 6 floors below ground under the Minneapolis Downtown Hilton.

Commemerative Air Force Shoot.

Commemorative Air Force, Minnesota Wing was nice enough to pull out Miss Mitchell for this shoot featured in Rat Rod Magazine

This was one of those shoots where it all came together. I lined up a beautiful pinup model, I was able to convince the Minnesota Wing of the Commemorative Air Force to open up their hangar and pull out their restored aircraft. And I was able to have the owner of a high speed rat rod bring his car out. The weather was great, and it all just “clicked.”

I hope you enjoy this photo, the whole shoot can be found here: Commemorative Air Force Shoot on Flickr

I’ll be back soon(ish) :)

Chad Truss Photography: The website is in the works.

Last year my energy went into other things, but 2013 is it. I’m bringing back the site soon and hope to have quick easy ways to commission my services and buy art..

I have some new equipment and I will be pushing the boundaries of said equipment. I’ll post up some samples and talk about what I am up to from time to time. So stay tuned.

Thanks again for stopping by, I’ll have this place going in a couple weeks.
